    The Catie Conrad books are so great that I have even started a book club for young girls in my community using these books. The girls love them, and I do as well! Catie is funny, relatable, and gives girls an opportunity to lose themselves in a book. You go, Angie Spady! I look forward to reading more of your books.

    This book by: Angie Spady and illustrated by: Channing Everidge is the second in The (Desperate) Diva Diaries which is a Christian alternative to the Dork Diaries. It portrays a Christian girl in public middle school (6th grade) who has to deal with the ups and downs of being a tween. Catie Conrad writes in her diary about all of the drama in her life. In this book, Caties familys mission in this book is to adopt a child through Compassion International. They decide as a family which child they will support as a family. Valentines Day is just around the corner and Catie is constantly nervous around the boy she has a crush on. She is still struggling with her feelings and actions towards her brother, Jeremy. But when the Germ breaks his leg, Catie learns how to serve him with compassion. She gives him advice on how to deal with the boys at school who tease him. She sees the value in her own advice when she has to deal with the school bully, Miranda Maroni, who does everything she can to rile up Catie. Thank God for BFF, Sophie, and the rest of her friends who stand up for her!

    After reviewing the first book in this series, Catie Conrad: Faith, Friendship, and Fashion Disasters! I was excited when asked to read and review book 2! I like how real the storyline is. I feel like I am back in the ups and downs of Middle School. Catie shares her true feelings even if they are not always the best but then shares how she decides to do the right thing by recalling scripture, sermons, or parental & friend advice. While the Christian perspective is scattered throughout the book, the salvation message was not as strong as the first book. Still the message of showing compassion and love towards enemies and those who we dislike is definitely woven throughout the book. I really like these books and know that my daughters will like them as well. I have caught my 8 year old reading portions of it along side of me while I was reading. I still feel like my 8 year old is a little young for some of the content (the crush on boys and popular girl trying to get boys to notice her) but she is able to read the book well from a reading level perspective. She loves the drawings throughout the book which actually goes right along with her personality since she always carries around a notebook for writing and drawing. I think that this book is an easy read and would appeal to tween girls. Parents will love the wholesome storyline and that Catie works through her drama from a Christian perspective.

    In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission I am required to disclose that B&H Kids provided this book for free in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.

    For anyone who loves the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, but with a Christian twist, then you MUST pick up a copy of The Desperate Diva Diaries from Angie Spady. Written in similar format of the Diaries of the Wimpy Kid series, these are written from the perspective of Catie Conrad and her life in Middle School. Struggling with the same issues our teens face from secret crushes, bullying by the popular girls, struggling with school and life with her brother Jeremy who she refers to as Germ, the pest. it provides an outlet that teens can feel comfortable with.

    This is the second novel, Catie Conrad: How to Become the Most Unpopular Girl in Middle School from Angie Spady. You don't have to read the first one to jump into this one and gain a true sense of appreciation from the things Catie struggles with. It's almost like a Christian version of Lizzie Maguire! Catie's help comes from her BFF, Sophie who is super smart and part of the Academic Team, who offers biblical advice when Catie has come to the end of her rope. While being far from perfect herself, Sophie struggles to deal with Miranda Maroni, the popular girl at school who never has anything nice to say to anyone who isn't in her click.

    Even though Catie dreams of one day being a fashion diva through her many sketches of outfits and designing things from shirts to purses, she is your typical teen who has to deal with so many things on a daily basis. Her biggest challenge in this book is dealing with her younger brother, his pet skunk Rosie and just when she thinks it can't get any worse, he takes on the responsibility for caring for Dylan's bearded dragon when his family leaves to China to bring back their adopted sister. Now Catie has to deal with more pets than she can handle including her brother. Is there anyone who can understand?

    I received The Desperate Diva Diaries: How To Become The Most Unpopular Girl in Middle School by Angie Spady compliments of Shelton Interactive and B and H Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions included here are strictly my own. I LOVE this series and have enjoyed reading them. I can see how young teens would benefit from sharing in the real life situations that Catie experiences, from failing a quiz, dealing with bullies, and trying to make a positive impression in her school and at home. This one even addresses volunteering and contributing to supporting the Compassion International program of helping out kids with monetary donations, but will the kids be able to part with their allowances? You'll have to read this one and see how it all turns out. The best thing I love about this is the Scripture references that Catie refers to when life is more than she can handle and how she attempts to live it out through her friends and family. Well worth a 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion.
